Mount Myoken Observatory Park

Genre : 露营地与公园

Area : 油谷/日置地区

In Mount Myoken Observatory Park, take in Nagato's cobalt blue seas with an incredible 360 degree panoramic view.

The view from the 275 meter summit of Mount Myoken is truly remarkable, from the setting sun sinking behind the silhouette of the island below, and the fishing lights in the bay twinkling like diamonds in the dim light.
The mountain trail is lined with seasonal flowers like azaleas and hydrangeas, whose changing blooms are a delight to hikers.


Best viewing times for fishing fires: Rainy season, from May-June (Fishermen will not be out on Saturday nights, or the evening before a national holiday)
